Gazing Grain Press Chapbook Contest

Gazing Grain Press, an inclusive feminist press, is hosting its second annual chapbook contest, sponsored by the Fall for the Book literary festival in Washington, D.C. The contest is judged this year by poet Cathy Park Hong and open to submissions until June 1.

This contest promotes feminist poetry to and by writers of all genders and sexualities. We are interested in work that explores ideas of identities as connected to gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity, culture, and ability. We have no one "definition" of feminism and are open to anything.

The winner of the contest receives publication, contributor copies, and an invitation to read at Fall for the Book (including accommodation and continental U.S. travel). Full guidelines and more details about the press are here at the Gazing Grain Press website, http://gazinggrainpress.wordpress.com/.
